And then, my favorite...What do you like to do outside of school?
The intended answer is something like...I like to play basketball with my friends, or something like that. But nine times out of ten, kids respond with "Um, hang out."
Anyway! I asked my new girl today what she likes to do outside of school. Her response?
"Ummm...hang out with my friends, and my boyfriends (yes, she said boyfriendS), and text."
TEXT. She listed TEXTING as an ACTIVITY. Gah. What is happening to today's youth???
